|Thai Food Essentials @ Deccan Pavilion ITC Kakatiya Hyderabad|
From my days in Bangalore, I have had a liking for Thai cuisine. What makes this cuisine special is its simplicity and aromas. Finally I got a chance to enjoy authentic Thai food this weekend in Hyderabad at Deccan Pavilion at ITC Kakatiya as they announced the launch of their Week- long Thai Food Festival. This food festival is on up-to Sunday, 24th March 2013 and is available for lunch and dinner. It is in a buffet format that comes at Rs. 1199 for vegetarian and Rs. 1299 for non - vegetarians.
The Buffet was an interesting mix of salads, starters, main course and desserts. I started with veg Tom Yum soup that was light in texture, tangy and spicy in flavor and had big pieces of juicy mushrooms. It had a beautiful lemongrass aroma - an important and must have Thai kitchen ingredient.
Starters were a delight as I got to taste Silicon Tofu - a simple preparation that was crispy from outside and extremely smooth and soft from inside.
Corn Cakes were another veggies delight served with a red sweet and sour corn sauce.
|Non-vegetarians too had a great time with Chicken Cashew and Prawn Salad.|
Main Course and Desserts:Main course was a mix of Thai curry and rice which was again flavorful and nutty. We finished the meal with desserts but it was a task to pick and choose our favorites from the many options available ranging from Indian sweets, to souffle, puddings, brownies to cakes and others.
